The Chairman of the Energy Commission, Dr. Kwame Ampofo has stated that the power crisis that bedeviled the country for over three years has been resolved.
“Dumsor itself has been resolved,” Dr. Ampofo told Morning Starr host Nii Arday Clegg Monday adding “the fact of the situation is that supply has now exceeded demand therefore we are not in that dumsor regime”.
Ghana has in the last three years been reeling under severe power crisis with the Electricity Company of Ghana at some point shedding between 600 megawatts of power at peak time and 450 megawatts during off peak periods.
The situation has improved over the last month but a section of the public have complained that the power crisis is gradually creeping back with recent power outages.
But according to Dr. Ampofo, government has successfully managed the crisis that happened and intends to put in place measures that would prevent the country from encountering such a situation in the future.
“At this particular point in time we have managed the crisis that existed, now we should go further to ensure that this situation does not arise again…and that is when we can say it has been fixed”.
